Event details

State volcanologists have recorded an increased number of seismic activity of Bulusan Volcano in the province of Sorsogon in the Bicol region and raised the alert from Level 0 to 1 on Sunday. Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology Director Renato Solidum told Super Radyo dzBB on Sunday afternoon that the increase in the volcano’s phreatic activity prompted Phivolcs to raise Bulusan’s alert status to Level 1. From May 4 to 5 Phivolcs said 16 volcanic earthquakes were recorded by the Bulusan Volcano seismic monitoring network. Volcanologists also noticed slight inflation of Bulusan’s upper slopes. This means Solidum said, hydro-thermal processes may be underway beneath the volcano that may lead to steam-driven eruptions. Local authorities around the Bulusan are advised to enforce the 4-kilometer radius Permanent Danger Zone (PDZ). But on the southern slopes of the volcano, an extended PDZ of the 6-kilometer radius should be off limits of residents and visitors because of the possibility of sudden and hazardous phreatic eruptions, rockfall, and landslides, Solidum added. Likewise, civil aviation authorities must advise pilots to avoid flying close to the volcano’s summit as ash from any sudden phreatic eruption can be hazardous to aircraft.
